5 Ingredient Layered Mango Cheesecake Parfaits! A beautiful and delicious mango cream cheese dessert!

Mangoes are deliciously sweet this time of year. My very, very favorite kind are champagne mangoes which are small and yellow.

Sometimes you’ll see them labeled as ataulfo mangoes. If you’re really in a pinch, you could use some thawed frozen mango chunks.

I would highly recommend picking up this mango splitting tool to easily remove the pit from your mangoes.

It makes it SO much easier than doing it by hand – I use mine all throughout the year.

Here’s the low-down on how to make these little beauties:

Remove the peel and pit from the mangoes. Puree flesh until smooth. Set aside.

Whip the cream. Fold in the powdered sugar, followed by ROOM TEMPERATURE cream cheese. Don’t you dare try to use cold cream cheese, it really won’t work.

Layer the ingredients in a glass.

Chill (or not). Eat.

Did someone say parfait mango? Here is an easy, delicious way to make 5 Ingredient Layered Mango Cheesecake Parfaits!

It’s a pretty flexible mango parfait recipe. If your mangoes are as sweet as you’d like them to be you could add a little honey while you puree them.

If you wanted to get really crazy you could melt butter into the graham cracker crumbs to form a more traditional “crust.”

I used piping bags to layer my cheesecake parfaits because I’m a freak and had to take pictures. If you spoon the ingredients in it may not be as pretty but it will taste just as good.

If you’re worried about it, just build these in a non-see-through glass 🙂

The only thing that really isn’t flexible about this mango cream cheese recipe is the room-temperature cream cheese. Seriously, I can’t stress it enough. It should be almost warm.

If you jump the gun and try to fold it in while it is still cold you’ll end up with chunky cheesecake mixture.

All you can really do at that point is try to heat up a little cream and drizzle it in slowly while you beat the mixture into submission.

Okay, ready for some super-easy cheesecake parfait goodness?

  1. This looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it. I’m thinking that I would try pureeing half the mango, but leaving the other half in small chunks for more texture.

    Also, champagne or atualfo mangoes are sometimes marketed as honey mangoes. You’re right that they’re the best mangoes. The key is to be very patient and don’t eat them before they ripen fully–they should be a deep yellow-orange all over. Even slightly shrivelly is best.
